Discover the Word Radio Program Announces New Hosts, Elisa Morgan and Bill Crowder  

Discover the WordThe Discover the Word radio program, part of the family of RBC Ministries and Our Daily Bread, has announced new hosts to replace retiring hosts Haddon Robinson and Alice Mathews.

New show hosts Elisa Morgan and Bill Crowder will join host Mart DeHaan on the show beginning February 3.

Elisa Morgan was named by Christianity Today as one of the top 50 women influencing today’s church and culture and is one of today’s most sought‐after authors, speakers, and leaders. Morgan has authored over 15 books on mothering, spiritual formation, and evangelism. She also served as CEO of MOPS International for more than 20 years.

Bill Crowder is an author, an Our Daily Bread devotional writer, and a former pastor. Crowder currently serves on the RBC Ministries staff evaluating biblical content for various ministry efforts and engaging in Bible conference ministry around the world.

Current host Mart DeHaan is the former President of RBC Ministries. DeHaan is regularly seen on Day of Discovery television programs (recipient of the 2014 NRB Media Award for Best TV Teaching Program) and is a contributing writer for Our Daily Bread.

The Discover the Word radio program has its roots in the Radio Bible Class Daily program that began in 1980. In 1991, Haddon Robinson and Alice Mathews joined DeHaan and began to work through Bible passages in an expositional way to find direction for daily living. The show became known as Discover the Word in 1998 and seeks to engage listeners in insightful discussions centered around the written and living Word of God.
